    Great follow-up, maybe better than first season

    As much as I loved Billy Bob Thornton in the first season, the second season has perhaps an even better overall cast. Kirsten Dunst and Ted Danson are probably the biggest names, but there are outstanding performances from the entire ensemble. Jesse Plemons was fantastic, and he seems to have put on about 40 pounds versus his role on Breaking Bad. Jean Smart is great as always, and there are very entertaining performances in smaller roles from Nick Offerman and Brad Garrett. Even though the second season is ostensibly a sequel, it's actually a prequel of sorts, with the events occurring about a quarter century before the first season. There isn't much of a carryover of story lines vis-a-vis to the first season, but one of the characters in the second season does in fact exist in the first season, albeit portrayed by an older actor in the later storyline. And as in the first season, the writing and cinematography are excellent. I can't wait for season 3.

    FARGO S2 - NEW ERA. NEW MYSTERY. SAME SNOWY HECK!

    This season of Fargo can be viewed without watching the first, though there are some cool strands of plot-winks in there if you did. I really like this resurgence of anthology TV that we are getting nowadays, with shows like Fargo, True Detective and American Horror Story, as they always tend to excite with what may come next. In this case, we get a new string of murders that somehow yarn into one giant mystery, a new setting with the era of the 70s, and its all set in the same snowy landscape that we love - this time sprawling across N. Dakota, Fargo, and Kansas City - with mobsters coming from each area, coppers on the wrong side of the line and a poor couple that has stumbled into one heck of a doozy. But don't worry, it will all end well, right? After all, this is Fargo!

    Good, but not great

    Fargo season 2 was good, but was not brilliant like Season 1. Everything about the first season was perfect. There were some very good performances in season 2...Ted Danson, Jesse Plemmons & Patrick Wilson were standouts...but some were just a little too over the top for me, most notably Kirsten Dunst and especially Bokeem Woodbine. His character was as annoying as his one episode role on The Sopranos. Unfortunately he's in every episode of Fargo. The decisions to include all the different split screens throughout the season was also very annoying. Even good as far as doing a split screen of the same shot...WHAT???!!! I wouldn't necessarily say I was disappointed in season 2, but it didn't live up the all the hype & wasn't nearly as excellent as season 1.

    An American anthology, a black comedy–crime story.

    This iconic American true story is primarily set between Fargo, North Dakota & Luverne, Minnesota in March of 1979. Season Two details all the events that lead to a massacre in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The story follows a beautician and her husband, a local butcher, as they look to cover up a hit-and-run of the son of a local mob family that runs the town. The local mob is being pressured to let in a rival Kansas City mob that is looking to expand, and take over their operations in the small Minnesota town, and it documents the bloodbath that follows.

    After an excellent season 1, I was looking forward to season 2 with high expectations. The reviews oit there said that this season was even better than the first. In the end, I prefer the tighter story and pacing of season 1, as well as the cast. Season 2 had a few ridiculous moments that took me out of the story, and the story itself was less focused. The set comes packed with extras and commentaries. Overall, I recommend for season 1 fans, but try to temper your expectations.

    Almost as good as season 1

    Season 1 of Fargo is one of my all-time favorite miniseries. Season 2 is nearly as perfect. It was a little slower going at the start and was harder to get interested in (for me, at least), but once it got going, it was every bit as awesome as the first season, and the acting is just spectacular across the board, especially surprising to me was Kirsten Dunst's performace. I don't normally think she's all that great of an actress, but she was amazing in this.

    When I first heard that they were making a series out of Fargo, I was pretty skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised. I was extremely happy when they announced season 2 and it is just as good as the first season except for one little issue I had with the season. I won't spoil anything but you will know it when you see it. The actors are great, especially Jeffery Donovan. Kirsten Dunst does a very good job as well. I highly recommend season 2!

    A crime drama for those who don't like crime drama

    Much like the original movie and season 1, Fargo season 2 is off the beaten path. Each episode is gripping in its own way. What drives the show is the variety of quirky characters and the way they interact with each other. If you watch shows like "CSI" 5 nights a week, this is probably not for you. I would recommend watching season 1 first, although that's not imperative. And the seasons are completely unrelated to the movie.
